Terraria NPCs Guide

NPCs (Non-player characters) are the friendly residents who are living in your town. They sell materials and devices that can be super-helpful to you. Anyone from the NPCs who is a vendor, can also buy items from you.

Anyone who can sell can buy. And you cannot decide the price of the items. You will have to sell it to them at the same price of the market cost.

There are a total of 21 residents allowed in the town. So it is better if you make some extra room. The NPCs can move in throughout the year as long as you give them valid housing.

Some of the NPCs will just move in, once there certain requirements are met by your housing facilities. Other NPCs spend time exploring the various underground areas before moving in.

Some NPCs will require you to defeat the Wall of Flesh and enable Hardmode. The NPC list’s purpose in this article is to prepare you beforehand any extra person moves in. This willl help you have enough room whenever needed.

Situations when NPCs are killed.

In the situations when NPCs are killed. They will respawn probably the next day, and if there requirements are being met, they will again move in to the resident.

If the NPC that was killed was an underground explorer, then you will have to fulfill their requirements as earlier. Once they are, they will move in.

It is a better option to avoid fights between NPCs. These fights can lead to massive killings which will take time to recover.
